Called and chosen:

Jesus says: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat; because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Matthew 7:13–14).

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 7:21).

“For many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14).

“But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first” (Matthew 19:30). “But glory, honor, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile” (Romans 2:10).

Let us therefore be reminded that Paul the apostle said to: “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling that ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ” (Philippians 2:12, 1:10).

“Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).

Stairway leads to cross and glowing light
